In the Tradition of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Buddhist teachings at Lion’s Roar are especially designed for people with daily work, school and family commitments. Whether you are interested in simple calm-abiding meditation or more advanced Buddhist teachings there is a class just for you. It’s okay to just drop in.
